Different

http://bible.com/8/eph.5.3-4.amp But immorality (sexual vice) and all impurity [of lustful, rich, wasteful living] or greediness must not even be named among you, as is fitting and proper among saints (God’s consecrated people). Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice your thankfulness [to God].

Yes, Christians, really born-again Christians, take on the character and nature of God. God is holy and His children are expected to be holy.

This makes the disciple of Christ different than the unregenerate, indeed, the degenerate, lost society in which they live.

Because of their difference they are mocked, maligned, and misunderstood, just like Jesus was. “A servant is not greater than his master.”

Are you willing to be different? Then you are a candidate for the glorious covenant promises of God, with persecutions.
